All Truth must be proved by two or three scriptures!
In God’s wisdom, He did not leave use without a way to prove all truth. By scriptures saying to us the same thing, over, and over again the same thing, we have a true witness to the truth of what God is saying to us.
As we study the Old Testament, we see the ten commandments repeated over and over again. The purpose in this was because God had told the people in Old Testament, and in New Testament, that by the witness of one man, a man, or woman would not be put to death by one witness, but by the witness of two or three witnesses a person would be put to death. The Same is true in New Testament, by one man’s witness we will not be put to death, but the New Testament has a witness for every truth, therefore we are without excuse, all we have to do is find the two or three witnesses that it takes to reveal truth to us. Without us believing the scriptures, we will never receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.(Not Holy Spirit!) that unlocks the scriptures to us that we might “see” by the Spirit the things that God wants us to see.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall “see” God.
The word “see” here is to see by the Spirit. If you have not been born again by “the Holy Ghost”, you will not be able to understand spiritual things, and “Know” as God knows! John 14,15,16,17. (Authorized King James 1611 Verison.)
2 Corinthians 13
King James Version (KJV)
13 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
3 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for “you” it is safe.
14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
